Losing It

A novel by

Bennett Robinson loves baseball, especially watching Dodgers games with his dad while munching on burgers and fries - the perfect "game food." Baseball even helped Bennett and his dad get over his mom's death from cancer. But there's no way Bennett could ever play baseball. Bennett is fat, the kind of fat that gives you belly button sweat stains and makes it tough to get off a sagging couch. But on one perfect, baseball-watching day, everything changes. Bennett's dad is taken away on a stretcher, and Bennett doesn't know if he will live or die. Now Bennett has to move in with know-it-all Aunt Laura. And she's making it her personal mission to Get Bennett Healthy. Bennett knows that Aunt Laura will take over his entire life if he lets her. It's time for Bennett to step up to the plate. Because maybe there are some things a Fat Boy can talk to a girl, run a mile, and maybe even save his own life. Erin Fry explores the issue of obesity with heart, depth, and humor in this unforgettable debut novel.
